Officers responded to a Chase Bank in the 1000 block of West Orangethorpe Avenue after a call from an unknown person at 4:49 a.m., Corbett said.

A hazardous device squad from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene, the agency said on Twitter.

The intersection of West Orangethorpe Avenue and Euclid Street was closed for about two hours and the public was advised to avoid the area, police said.

All lanes were reopened after bomb squad personnel that the reported item was nothing more than exposed wires, the Police Department said.
